DESCRIPTION

The Museum of Everything is one of Europe’s most successful independent museums. It is the only British museum dedicated to unintentional, untrained and undiscovered artists from the 19th, 20th and 21st Centuries. Since 2009 it has welcomed over 200,000 visitors.

Exhibition #1 opened in London, featuring 500 works plus essays by Grayson Perry, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Maurizio Cattelan, Paula Rego, Nick Cave and more. The show was voted Best of 2009 in Time Out and Art Forum and travelled to the Agnelli Museum in Italy.

 Exhibition #2 at Tate Modern featured over 200 unknown works by self-taught British artists, selected by a panel of artists and curators, including Ron Arad, Iwona Blazwick and Jarvis Cocker.

 Exhibition #3 features a vast installation of self-taught art and ephemera co-curated with artist Sir Peter Blake, including a recreation of Walter Potter’s The Museum of Curiosity. The show and accompanying book were voted Best of 2010 by The Spectator.
